Great link and thanks.

One thing I noticed, and the link validates, is that the Parallax mounts seem to perform extremely well and compete well in price, yet are overlooked a bit in the market place.

Glad you like the list.

Optic-Craft gear looks interesting and beautiful, sad that it does not match my list requirements.

Update : I put a link to Optic-Craft in the 'interesting links' section :)

Sorry, somehow I seem to have been lost in translation with regards to "massive".
I'm thinking..... Is there a Model 8 in my future? :question:

Nice comparison list you've come up with. :waytogo:

Those ASA DDM mounts do extremely well in peak-2-peak. One day I'll have one. A guy's gotta have a dream. -David.
